A RICH HISTORY

 

We are named for the 1898 American Horse of the Year, a thoroughbred called Hamburg. The Lexington businessman who trained and eventually sold Hamburg, used the profits to purchase this land for his farm. The farm bred four Kentucky Derby winners and many other champion racehorses including the first ever Triple Crown winner, Sir Barton. Eventually amassing over 2,000 acres known as Hamburg Place, the property was named in honor of the horse that started it all. Today we honor that tradition with our community nestled in the rolling terrain around one of the old farm ponds. Come and enjoy the cherry blossoms in spring or the brilliant colors of our mature trees in Autumn. Be a part of the rich heritage of horse farms that define our city at Hamburg Farms.
